Poetry Friday: Two Little Dicky Birds

Two little dicky birds sitting on a wall,
One named Peter, one named Paul.
Fly away Peter, fly away Paul,
Come back Peter, come back Paul!

Thanks to this UK nursery rhyme site for the image and reminder of one of my favorite rhymes when I was a tot! A little looking around revealed the name dicky bird is a child's term for any small bird. Now we know!

Today's Poetry Friday is up over at The Boy Reader.

I've been doing that with my grandson for a few months, only I learned it:

Two little birdies
Sitting on a hill
One named Jack
One named Jill
Fly away Jack
Fly away Jill
Come back Jack
Come back Jill
